A little fun with math today. Vince Young has fallen out of favor in Tennessee. Throwing shoulder pads into the stands, walking out on Jeff Fisher, and other madness. Something has got to give up in Nashville, and it is quite possible that Mr. Young’s services may be available this offseason. A glance at VY’s numbers are actually quite illuminating, at least to us.
If y0u take Vince’s 2010 numbers, pre-benching (just over half a season), and project them to Chad Henne’s number of attempts this year, well, wow. If he were used the same way as Chad, Vince projects to have:
30TDs, 9 INTs, 3200 yards passing. 200 yards rushing. That’s with one more game to play.
That is based on this season’s numbers. But even in 2009 Vince accounted for 12TDs and just 6INTs in 10 games. Simply put, the guy has learned how to play pretty darned well at quarterback in the last two years. He’s got an arm, but is also able to buy receivers the extra couple of seconds they need to get open. Not to mention he’s a threat to pick up a few first downs with his legs. Could bring a very dynamic element to Davie.
Now, whether he’s a head case is an entirely different question. Would pairing him with Brandon “Crazylegs” Marshall be asking for a cataclysmic meltdown in South Florida? Possibly. But they might also be explosive in a good way too.
Just something to keep an eye on moving forward.
